Newly announced in Malaysia but to appear in Europe, Gen2 suggests that Proton is in the procedure for raising its game.
Visually neat and stylish – and showing lots of European influence – the 4 door sedan includes a nose-down rake and satisfyingly uncluttered frontal detail. Gen2 also makes full utilization of Lotus expertise to supply world-class levels of handling.
Engine options are initially limited to a 1.6 litre four with 110PS, but a more powerful GTI version along with a modest, economical 1.3 will also be expected since the model rolls out. An estate version with an increase of rear overhang will probably round from the range inside the next year.
